Stand-up Angela Barnes is on the road with Rose Tinted, heading to Brighton Komedia on Wednesday, February 6

Spokeswoman Amanda Emery said: “Once again, Angela Barnes sold out show after show at last year’s Edinburgh Festival and picked up some well-earned critical acclaim along the way. Now she brings that show, Rose Tinted, on a tour of the UK in 2019.

“You may have seen or heard Angela on a number of topical comedy TV and radio shows, and do you know what? She is just about fed up of the news! She’s anxious, she’s depressed and she’s fatigued. Bored of Brexit, tired of Trump and knackered by North Korea. The world is going to hell in a handcart and Angela, a natural pessimist, is fed up of commentating on it all as it happens.

“But can a renowned pessimist like Angela really find it in herself to accentuate the positive, look on the bright side and pop on her rose-tinted specs to make the bad stuff go away? Just for a little bit? Like maybe for an hour? Or is she better off confronting the horrible stuff and laughing in its ugly face? This is stand-up and stories from a woman who is just, like the rest of us, trying to live her life… and wouldn’t mind a taste of that ignorant bliss she’s heard so much about!

“Before becoming a comedian, Angela worked in health and social care. In 2011, she won the BBC New Comedy Award and became a finalist at the 2011 Latitude Festival New Act of the Year competition. Since then Angela has become a regular on BBC’s The News Quiz, Newsjack and Mock The Week. She has also appeared on Live At The Apollo (BBC2), The Now Show (BBC Radio 4), Stand Up For The Week (Channel 4/Open Mic) and Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC3).

“Besides Rose Tinted’s success at the Fringe in 2018, Angela was also awarded the Edinburgh Panel Prize as part of the Home Safe Collective – a project to help vulnerable comedians get home safely after shows, in the wake of the tragic death of Australian stand-up Eurydice Dixon.”
